The Brassie Addition In College Park

October 5, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

One of our latest College park additions with an elevation change in the front. We increased the square footage 1100sf by adding a large family room, master suite, indoor laundry and making kitchen bigger.  This remodel also included a re-wire, re-plumb, Insulation, HVAC, roof, trim, flooring, stucco, windows, paint, kitchen, bathrooms, landscaping and much more. This property was a home we purchased from a private seller through probate. The owner could not afford to fix all the needed repairs. We paid more than the home was worth as a flip and ended up buying anyway. To make the deal work we had to increase the square footage at least 1000sf. College park is full of small homes on decent sized lots that will allow for this kind of deal structuring.

Is There a Successful House Flipper in You?

Thinking About Real Estate InvestmentThere is a hot topic amongst many in the Central Florida real estate market and that is flipping houses. This particular investment strategy involves three major steps which could be described as follows:

  1. Buy a piece of real estate (preferably somewhere in Central Florida)
  2. Fix it up (preferably for less than you paid for it)
  3. Turn it around (or flip it) quickly on the market at a higher price

You can probably see why this holds appeal for many people interested in trying their hands at real estate investment. This is where we’d just like to pass on our few words of caution and advice for people interested in taking this step on their own. Just like any potentially lucrative venture, success will require a few things. It’s going to take patience, skill and some money of your own.

Home Flipping Advice from the Experts

Some people are interested in trying their hand at flipping properties but don’t want to go at it all on their own. This is one of the areas we specialize in. If you’re still leaning towards more of a DIY mentality, we have some words of wisdom worth considering in advance:

Six Tips to Get Your Home Investment Game Off the Ground

Six Tips to Get Your Home Investment Game Off the Ground

November 14, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The current growth in the housing market has tempted more people into taking the investment plunge. Is this the right move for you? To make the most out of a real estate investment (or even simply to avoid disaster), you’ll need to make intelligent decisions from the get-go.

Investment Guidelines for New Home Buyers

If it’s your first time investing in the Central Florida housing market, here are a few investment tips that you should keep in mind:

1) Good Investment is a Numbers Game

Successful investing is a numbers game. You want to avoid becoming emotionally invested in the property. This is not going to involve the same metrics that you might focus on for your family’s residence. To play this numbers game well, keep these three points in mind:

  • What you need to spend to purchase the property.
  • How much it’ll cost to refurbish the property.
  • What you’ll be able to sell or rent it for.

2) Have a Strategy in Place

You’ll avoid plenty of issues if you know your strategy and stick to it. Are you looking to fix up homes or buy and hold until property values come up? This is also an essential practice if you are learning how to flip properties. Having a strategy in place allows you to react effectively to the unexpected without losing sight of long-term goals.

Why Real Estate May Be the Only Real Mainstay Market

December 13, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

While you see businesses come to life, peak and fall, you may be thinking if a business of real estate is worth investing in. Would if the same thing happens to this business. You wouldn’t want to invest in something that won’t be substantial. Unlike other businesses, real estate is always a good investment to make, and may be the only real mainstay market.

Even though the real estate market rises and falls, there are still many benefits to being in real estate. You can expect that if something happens that causes the real estate to lower, it will eventually come back up. There is always a need for housing and people are always moving into different locations. No matter what type of real estate you are investing in, you can expect that someone will have the need to live on the property. Because real estate is part of the basic needs of individuals, it can be expected that someone will always be looking, and others will always be selling.

New Appraisal Standards

September 15, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

 

NEW APPRAISAL STANDARDS

Effective 9-1-2011



If you have been in the real estate industry over the last few years the one constants in our business is change.  Below are the current appraisal changes that are now in effect. 

 

Will they make deals easier or harder to close? 

Probably both, but either way you should be aware of these changes and how it effects your business.



The Federal Housing Finance Agency has directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to develop the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD). The UAD will:

(1) define what fields are required for an appraisal submission and 

(2) standardize both responses and definitions for certain fields.



What do this mean to you?



Here are just a few of the items impacted by the new appraisal standards:



**Days on the Market: Days on market is now defined as the total number of continuous days. If a property is taken off the market and then relisted,   the appraiser will have to count all of the days it has been listed.



**Offering Price: The original offering price and history of all price changes must be reported.



**Property Style: Appraisers must use appropriate architectural design indicators such as "Colonial," "Farmhouse," etc. Descriptions such as 1 story, 2 stories, etc are no longer acceptable.

 

**Quality of Construction: The appraiser must rate the quality of construction of the subject property and all comps using a list of 6 predefined quality levels.



**Location will no longer be simply "suburban" "rural" or "Urban".   The new reporting must give a location (overall) rating of "N"eutral,  "B"eneficial or "A"dverse plus a location factor such as Res for residential  — indicating the location is Beneficial and located on a Golfcourse or perhaps,    

A; BsyRd for adverse location on a busy road



**Condtion will no longer be just "average".   It will be a rating of C1 through C6.   C1 will indicate New, never occupied and C6 will indicate severe deficiencies or defects in structural integrity.   Our typical "average" home will likely carry a C4 rating and anything lower will indicate possible repair issues.
